|We chase the things that we want but don't suit us. And as soon as we catch it, we decide we don't want it. We get the thrill from the chase and then as quickly as it started it's over.
But what happens when we start chasing perfection? We never reach it, we can't reach it. We are fundamentally flawed as a species, perfection is impossible. Yet why do we always reach for it? We reach for the moon, hoping to get there but what's the point? We always fall short and land on a star.
The point is the chase, I get the thrill from the chase. The coming so close and then realizing it's within my reach and then as soon as I touch it, it's gone. I want to keep trying to reach it.
I want to overshoot the moon and reach Pluto, or another galaxy.
But I don't want perfection.
I want the best version of myself possible. Which means I have to keep trying.
